Fourth Annual Washington State Middle School Computer Science Competition

May 12 @ 8:00 am - 2:00 pm

We are very excited about announcing that The Fourth Annual Washington State Middle School Computer Science Competition will be held on Saturday May 12, 2018 at The Microsoft Mixer Bldg (The Commons) in Redmond, Washington. Registration is now open, space is limited so please reserve your spot today.

PREPARATORY WORKSHOPS
To help students prepare for the competition and in the process, learn a few important computer science concepts, CFA has organized four 3-hour workshops at the following locations:
• 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM, Saturday, April 21, 2018 (Forest Ridge School of the Sacred Heart, Bellevue)
• 4:30 PM – 7:30 PM, Wednesday, April 25, 2018 (Chinook Middle School, Bellevue)
• 4:30 PM – 7:30 PM, Friday, April 27, 2018 (Kimball Elementary School, Seattle)
• 4:30 PM – 7:30 PM, Wednesday, May 2, 2018 (McClure Middle School, Seattle)
You will have the option to register for any one of these workshop when you register for the competition.

Once again, although the registration deadline is on Friday, May 4th, last year we had to close registration well before the deadline because of space constraints. So please register early.
